Here's my transcription from the recording at YouTube:


RED HEN HOP
Words and music by Charlie & Ira Louvin
As sung by the Louvin Brothers

There's a little red hen lives down the street.
She does the red-hen hop with a drumstick beat.
A chicken ain't a rooster if she can't make him crow.
She done the red-hen hop till she broke the roostin' pole.

Now the little red hen don't know her age,
But she don't worry 'bout turnin' gray.
She does the red-hen hop ever' time she lays an egg,
An' if you eat her egg for breakfast, you' gonna do the hop all day.

When all the other chickens are feelin' kind o' blue,
Now the little red hen knows what to do.
She gives out a party and they meet on a Saturday night.
They do the red-hen hop till the moon goes out o' sight.

One night when the party was a-gettin' kind o' cold,
Said the little red hen, "Give me room on the floor."
She grabbed her daddy 'cause he knows how to do the hop right.
They done the red-hen hop and they done it till broad daylight.

Now the old black rooster was a-peepin' through the crack,
Said, "I never seen the beat(?) since the day I was hatched.
Mama never told me what the red-hen hop has got.
I'll do the red-hen hop till the day they throw me in the pot."


[Now, Guest, I'd appreciate it if you'd tell me why you needed the lyrics.]

That line you had trouble with is this:

He said, "I never seen my feet since the day I was hatched"

that means, what a fat rooster!

The McCormick Brothers (in 1954) recorded it as the Red Hen Boogie, but it's the same song.
